    World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Days) is a yearly event on 23 April, organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. It is hoped that World Book and Copyright Day will increase people’s understanding of copyright laws and other measures to protect intellectual copyright.

    In the United Kingdom, the day is instead recognised on the first Thursday in March.

    World Book Day was celebrated for the first time on 23 April 1995. The date is symbolic for world literature. Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died on 23 April 1616. 

    23 April has also been taken as Shakespeare’s birthday (he was baptised on 26 April 1564, and his actual date of birth is unknown). This year, 2014, marks William Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday.

    Perhaps a bit too quote heavy? But I personally blame Rainbow Rowell and her amazing writing for that. It was super hard having to leave out so many amazing quotes…

  12. Anonymous asked: Can you please explain the Mr. Churchill posts? Like the most recent ones. Who is he? Is it a show? I'm very confused

    He’s from the YouTube series Emma Approved which is perfect so you should go watch it. As you might guess, it’s a vlog adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma. It’s by the same people who did Lizzie Bennett Diaries.
